Jeep Tours in Aruba....

Looking for opinions on 1/2 day jeep tours in Aruba for a family...which are the best...Aruba Adventures, DePalm Tours, ABC Tours, or WIX?

ABC was good. Can't comment on the others.

How long does it take to do a quick tour of Aruba by car? Is a half day enough time ?

Rusty....My concern is that a full day out may be too long for my 7 and 11 year olds. Any thoughts on this from anyone who has gone on one of the full day tours with children?

We did the half day tour and that was more than enough. It gets very hot out there. With ABC if you sign up for the half day tour, they give you the option to stay on for the rest of the day if you want.

Rusty...depends on what you wnat to see. To see the rugged side of the island (natural bridge and pool), 1/2 day is plenty, but if you also want to go to Baby Beach and the California Lighthouse etc... you will need more time.

Actually, I would suggest that you all rent a 4x4 and drive yourself. I wish we had. The off-roading isn't that abd and then you can do it at your own pace. everythign is easy to find with a map.

We're heading out to Aruba at the end of July. Would also like suggestions for Baby Beach + Jeep tours. I'm hesitating to rent a car- am taking two teenagers and don't want to argue with them about not letting them drive!
Also, does anyone have any info about older teens (18 and 19) at the Marriott, or does this resort cater to a younger family set?
